I recently built a computer. I used an ASUS A8N32 SLI Deluxe mobo. Put in a new SATA HD, partitioned it, installed XP SP2, everything went like clockwork. No problems. The HD is seen in the bios as master #3 and it is also jumpered as a master. It is seen as #three because #1 and #2 master/slaves are the IDE controllers. Problem: I have four legacy IDE drives that I have to get data off of and copied to the new drive. If I jumper the IDE drives as slave and plug in to the mobo, when I boot, the comp ALWAYS wants to boot off of the IDE drive and not the master SATA with the OS on it. I have the bios drive setup as floppy/CD/HD. I don't have any capability to change the hard disk drive sequence in the BIOS. Suggestions? THx.
